HIV Infection and Cardiovascular Health














Since the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy in the mid-1990s, HIV infection has evolved from a near-certain death sentence to a manageable, chronic disease. Still, little is known about the long-term effects of HIV on human health. Two studies being presented today on cardiovascular health and HIV suggest that HIV-infected patients develop cardiovascular disease at a much earlier age than those without HIV and are more likely to die after hospital admission for a heart attack.
